Liza Weil Age: Gilmore Girls To How to Get Away with Murder

Playing a high schooler when she starred in Gilmore Girls as Paris Geller what is Liza Weil‘s age now and what is she up to 20 years later?

“I’m Not Cut Out To Deal With People.” – Paris Geller

If you grew up watching Gilmore Girlsthen you were probably utterly obsessed with Paris. She was intense, a bit crazy, but inspiringly ambitious.

We didn’t always agree with her actions but we did kind of admire her tenacity (and sassy comebacks). Liza Weil seriously did the role justice.

She auditioned for the part when she was just 23 and since then has gone on to star in many different TV series. Oddly enough, when she was young, Liza Weil wanted to be an archaeologist because she was a fan of the Indiana Jones films – and had a childhood crush on Harrison Ford. But she stuck to acting and her career soon took off.

Whatever, followed the story of a teen coming to adulthood in the carefree sex and drugs age of the 80’s.

Liza played the main character, Anna Stockard who is living with her bitterly divorced mother and her younger brother, attempting to pursue her passion for art (and partying).

In 2000, Liza Weil landed the role of Paris Geller on Gilmore Girls; one of the most popular TV shows of all time. A (rather intense) high schooler, Paris was best friend to main character Rory who stuck with her through school, college and beyond.

Liza is naturally a brunette but she was made to die her hair to play the foil character to Rory.
